Anything revealing in your mail log?  I've seen this behavior before, but
not with CF 8. It was with older versions.  We ended up scheduling a nightly
restart of the service to alleviate things like this occurring.

So this AM, my production server had not sent me my usual batch of emails
(via cfmail).  I went to Server Settings > Mail, checked Verify mail server
connection, clicked Submit Changes, and received Connection Verification
Successful.  I stopped and restarted my SMTP server and then noticed that
email I was expecting to receive was sitting in C:\ColdFusion8\Mail\Spool.
I stopped and restarted the CF server (CF 8 with CHF 4) and now all of the
mail is being delivered.

Is this a fluke?  Known issue?  Anything I can do to prevent it from
